so can i just buy this off a UK website and use it here in the states on my ps3?

Nope, only works in UK, France, Germany, Italy & Spain. Other European countries will follow later. There will be know US 'PlayTV' as you can't pick up Freeview channels in the states.

I'm not 100% sure about this but as a guess I'd say yes it would work.

but most hd tv if not all has freeview so the point who records tv?

Marty83703779d ago

That's the whole point, and PlayTV supports remote play. So I can record TV by remote play while I'm out

And there are some retards on this site, why the hell I got disagree's when what I said above is true. PlayTV won't work in the US. It will only work via the PSP remote play in US, then you would be required to have a PS3 recieving PlayTV freeview siginal in eithier UK, France, Germany, Italy or Spain.
